ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

An East Point woman won $250,000 playing the new instant game from the Georgia Lottery, Giant Jingle Bucks.

Maria Gomez, 47, was on the way to a pharmacy with her husband, Juan, when they stopped at Citgo Food Mart on Washington Road in East Point, to purchase a ticket.

Gomez, a mother of three, scratched the ticket in the car.

"I saw the matching No. 17, and I said, 'Wait, wait! Stop the car,'" Gomez recalled. "We went back home and totally forgot about what we were going to buy."

Gomez said she would like to buy a new home and a big Christmas tree.
